Re: Vasovagal reaction and dreamlike state

R., Your saying that discussions of medical topics usually brings yours on hit home with me. I had one episode 4 years ago .. out to dinner with friends .. and one was discussing a very graphic medical thing she went through a long time ago. I had to ask her to stop talking about it and I left the table and went quickly to the bathroom where it was cool .. I was sooo hot!! Then, last month, I was again out to dinner with friends .. and one of the girls was talking about a procedure she recently had done .. and that's when it happened again. I had another episode about 2 weeks ago .. that one I can't tie to any medical topics, but I've been having a lot of medical poking and prodding since I went to my doctor about this several weeks ago, so the medical stuff has been all around me constantly the past few weeks. Very interesting though that the medical topics and discussing them can seem to cause your episodes.
